Little Rock Match Report - 2/20/10

Little Rock 22 - NORFC 20

New Orleans traveled to Little Rock to take on the Little Rock Stormers RFC.  Sloppy ballhandling and missed kicks was the story of the first half.  Little Rock flyhalf kicked a huge up and under that was put pressure on the NORFC back 3.  LR won the ball and after a couple of phases sent the ball wide left through the hands to score the first try.  The halftime score was 5-3 to the home side.   The 2nd half started like the first half ended, with Little Rock #13 scoring a try in the corner after a outrunning the NORFC defense on a kick and chase.  Little Rock added another unconverted try before New Orleans answered back with a try by Eric Mackintosh set up by a Joe Palermo offload on the sideline.  Little Rock's #13 then added his 2nd try of the game, outpacing the NORFC defense around the corner.  The LR flyhalf made the difficult conversion from the corner, his only of the day out of 4 attempts.  New Orleans answered back with another Eric Mackintosh.  Jarrett Falcon hit the corner conversion and New Orleans rushed back for the restart, with the referee stating there was only 1 minute remaining.  New Orleans gathered the kickoff and moved the ball through a couple of phases near mid-field before losing the ball in contact. Little Rock gathered the ball and promptly kicked to touch, ending the game.
